The case of Fr. Bismarck is one of the most controversial cases in the state of Goa. It is also the most sought after subject in the local and national media. After the viscera report now it is the Diatom report that came out to be negative. What will be the conclusion of the claims made by the supporters of Fr. Bismarck? Will Bismarck get the justice at the end?
According to the Diatom test report from CFSL (The central forensic science laboratory), the angle of foul play in the death of priest turned social activist Fr. Bismarck has been completely ruled out. The report has confirmed that the death was purely due to drowning and no other foul play involved into it.
The CFSL is situated in Hyderabad and all the forensic tests need to be sent to Hyderabad from Goa. Normally this is time consuming and expensive affair and takes real long time, sometimes few months. The mortal remains of the Bismarck are still waiting for its final rites.
The Goa police in the last week have confirmed the report of CFSL claiming that Fr. Bismarck died due to drowning and all the possibilities of the existence of the foul play had been ruled out by the CFSL Hyderabad. Superintendent of police (Crime Branch) Karthik Kashyap had said that they have received the Diatom test report from CFSL Hyderabad and based on the all three exhibits sent to them Syernum, Lungs and water samples from the crime spots and that have ruled out the theories of murder in any other area and later dumping the body into water.”
Although it is more than a month that Bismarck Dias passed away, but his family and supporters are not ready to believe in the theories put forth by the police or any of the investigation agencies. According to them the foul play do exists behind the death of Fr. Bismarck. Since the CFSL ruled out the possibility of any foul play and did not find any suspicious material in the viscera of Dias, the family of Bismarck has decided to wait until the report on the chemical analysis of the vest is received before holding the last rites of the mortal remains of Fr. Bismarck.
Till date, there are three analyses submitted to CFSL and out of which two have been received by the Goa police and both have supported the police investigation which tells that Bismarck died due to accidental drowning. Police are now waiting for the chemical report of the vest which is expected anytime soon and it will ascertain the fact whether it belongs to Fr. Bismarck.
It may be recalled that recently the JMFC had instructed the crime branch to conduct the lie detector test on Darryl Vaz who was with Dias on that fateful night but the Juvenile board (JJB) had turned down the request of JMFC and refused to allow the lie detector test on the minor. Darryl Vaz is one of the two boys went with Bismarck Dias for a swim at that night after which Dias went missing.
